, mitt romney and president obama hit the same state for the third day in a row. today it's virginia. the president will speak at a rally at a virginia beach am amphitheater. as we told you yesterday, virginia is likely to be this year's florida or ohio. the state where returns will mostly resemble the national number. if you want to know how important virginia is to both campaigns, look at where they are buying their tv ads. four of the top ten most saturated tv markets in the country this week are all in virginia. roanoke lynchburg market, and now washington d.c. which of course reaches into northern virginia. three more of the top ten are in ohio. the president leads by five to eight points. today the romney campaign will focus on local issues hitting the president on defense cuts. it's clear the 47% issue is a drag on romney's campaign. he went out of his way at every stop yesterday to show a more compassionate side. >> i've been across this country. i think the president cares about the people of america. i care about the people in america but i know how to help the people of am

"up with chris hayes," set your dvr now or your alarm clock. if you could choose a super power would it be the act to fly, be invisible or more powerful than a speeding locomotive? senator scott buon apparently has a super power. we will attempt to give it a name next. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like our exchange traded funds, or etfs tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 which now have the lowest tdd#: 1-800

events in virginia but they can't wait for just the debates. i think conservatives want to see not just big events in terms of big ideas but big events that grab the nation's attention. the romney campaign is frustrated because they say all the press asks them about is process but that's par for the course and true in every campaign i've ever covered, the press will talk about process particularly polls. mitt romney, conservatives are waiting for him to be big in events, big in message, big in personality. it seems like right now the campaign is waiting for him to do that in the debates. >> mark, you know why they focus on process, because there's not substance to -- you know, it's funny, in 1988 facing a more hostile press george h.w. bush never once whined about process. you know why? because james baker told the press what they were going to be following. and he told the candidate what he was going to be doing. and every week the candidate did it. the message was unbelievable. but again, going on with charles krauthammer, for six months mitt has been matching obama small ball for sma
the battleground scoreboard. first to virginia where a new york times/cbs/quinnipiac poll finds president obama with a four-point lead over mitt romney. about the same there, 50/46. in wisconsin, same poll shows the president leading by six, 51/45. that's important given paul ryan is on the ticket. and in colorado, obama with a small lead. always tricky now that state. why is colorado tricky? 47/48. that close. >>> welcome back to "hardball." the floodgates have opened. criticism of the romney campaign by his fellow republicans is growing louder and fiercer since romney's caught-on-tape comments on that 47% came to light monday. here was republican strategist mark mckinnon this morning. >> what we're seeing is an increasing problem of him being able to connect with voters in a sense that he understands and shares their values and concerns. and that gap's widening. >> uber conservative charles krautheimer, who has defended romney in the past, ripped into his comments last night on fox. let's take a look. >> he said these are people who consider themselves victims. now, that's not a very smart th
,000 in virginia, just shaving off 100,000 votes in the states could turn this election. secondly, when you look at congressman john lewis that pay the price for us to vote, you think that donna is right, we need to have a two-pronged strategy. we have got to fight for the law and we need to do everything we need to do to vote this year so where we can't turn them around like ohio and pennsylvania and michigan and reverend charles williams and others in michigan, we can still vote because if they could take no right to vote instead of against jim clark and get eaten like like john john ls san jose williams, then what excuse do we have if we can't get a couple of i.d.s and go to the pole? we cannot be that lazy that we cannot do what we have to do this november so as much as we are outraged about it, we need to have a strategy that we are there for going to be proactive in deal with it. lastly i'm glad you've said this because i'm with the conservatives. i'm a conservative. i'm trying to conserve the voting rights act. i'm trying to conserve the civil rights act. those that are trying to have a r
stumps today in norfolk, virginia. the last stop on his troed charlotte tour. last night the president put politics aside to visit a louisiana town hit by hurricane isaac and talk with local officials about the recovery effort, but he did manage to make a subtle contrast between the recovery efforts taking place today and those under his predecessor during hurricane katrina. >> i want to particularly thank fema and the state and local authorities, because sometimes in the past we haven't seen the kind of coordination that is necessary in response to these kinds of disasters. this time we've seen it. we weren't behind the eight ball. >> mitt romney is keeping a lower profile this week. he's using down time to prep for october presidential debates, but something romney said over the weekend did earn a presidential retort monday, and as the two sparred over their economic plans he got into a battle of sports metaphor. you know at "the daily rundown" we love a good sports metaphor. >> 23 million people are out of work, stopped looking for work or are underemployed. let me tell you if you h
mahon, virginia senate candidate george allen, and now nevada senator dean hower have all gone wobbly, refused to stand with, stand for the outed mitt romney, the one who tells rich people that the rest of the country is a bunch of loafers, freeloaders, bums. well, last night a new wobbler showed up, mitt romney himself. racing like a desperate crazy man, he suddenly declared he's changed his mind on the whole 47% business. that he's now proud of being the grandfather of obama care, proud to say he's for same-sex couples having partner rights and no way he wants to run those 12 million immigrants out of the country. so how scared is this candidate that he's now turning tail on so much of what he's been standing for? is the man we caught behind the curtain suddenly afraid of the script he's been reading? is this the moment, the etch-a-sketch moment, we were warned was coming, the alloutmoment of moral melt down. this afternoon, this afternoon at the univision candidates forum president obama responded to romney's caught on tape comments where he wrote off 47% of the country. let's take a listen
for the call. abby is on the phone from leesburg, virginia on our republican line. caller: i was just calling to say i agree with the last caller that we do have quite a bit of standstill because people are mostly focused on the politics of just polarizing the different parties than actually agreeing to compromise. however, i do appreciate some of the social issues, specifically abortion, that they don't compromise as much. not every issue needs to be such a hard-line. host: thank you. twitter --ion if you are listening on c-span radio, we are talking about congress, expected to wrap up business today, recessing for the november elections and then back for a busy lame-duck session. mike has this story -- is more from the democratic leader nancy pelosi of california.

"outfront" tonight, dana bash and when races are this tight, it seems like everything must have an effect. whether it be romney's recent 47% remarks on people paying taxes or anything else, right? >> that's certainly the fear among republicans running a lot of these races. that is why with regard to this last controversy over mitt romney's 47% mark, the people who really could have potentially been hurt the most moved very, very fast to distance themselves from mitt romney. the senator from massachusetts. scott brown, who is behind before this. linda mcmahon, the candidate from connecticut and dean heller, the republican senator from nevada. i spoke with him for a fairly long time in the hall of the senate today and he was talking about why he totally disagrees with mitt romney and put it in interesting terms. i want to put up part of hi
